Teams with serious designs on challenging for trophies don't sign stop gaps for positions they are already filling with a stop gap.

Milner isn't a stopgap.

Milner isn't a stopgap.

Of course he is...unless you think a soon to be 32 year old, slow right footed midfielder who openly has said he wanted to turn down doing the job is what should be first choice left back at a club like LFC

We've bought players from relegated teams before many times and they sometimes work out fine. We bought a left back from a relegated Newcastle in 1978 and he wasn't too bad,actually won us 2 european cups.

Robertson is a good young full back. Intelligent lad, good engine, gets up & down the left hand side all day. Decent pace, likes a tackle and has good delivery with his left foot. He's a very positive player who likes to get forward when possible.

 

I reckon he'll improve significantly surrounded by better players and coaching staff week in week out.

 

I've got plenty of time for Robertson, he's earned his way to a move to a top club, even if it is just as backup to begin with.

 

After being bombed out at Celtic as an under 15 for being too small, he moved to Queens Park and established himself as first choice as an 18 year old, before getting a move to Dundee United, where in his first season as a professional, he won the SPFA Young Player of the Year award and won his first international cap for Scotland.

 

A year later, he got his move to Hull and has been first choice for them ever since.

I agree

I don't think he'll ever be a world beater but at worst he offers a option behind Milner for a year or so until we find the LB we need. You dont want to be changing half the team at once. He should be a fairly dependable back up at worst and at 8ml you cant ask for much more

If hes backup to Milner who is not good enough for left back to begin with, then its a pointless signing, if hes a much better left back player then welcome to liverpool.

 

Milner and Clyne must be the two defenders in the league that are most on the ball in the opposite half and nothing happens. and dont get me started on Milners corners.

Klopp is clearly in the development business. Robertson is 23, has 130 games under his belt, a lot of them in premier league. Klopp thinks he can help us and he can make him a better player.

 

That said I bet Robertson cannot fucking believe it but just goes to show he has a great attitude if he got dumped by Celtic at a young age, he's worked hard and is getting his rewards.

Shut up all ye doubters! Klopp knows his players and Robertson will continue in the fine tradition of great Scottish defenders...Nicol, Hansen, Gillespie.

 

Myself, I stop second guessing Klopp after Mane. Was happily proven wrong by the man.

I asked my Dundee Utd supporting mate what he thought of him & he said, "He's better than Moreno.".

 

So that's him and seven billion other people then.
